Small Tool = Big Results. And It Won’t Cost The Earth. The Science Behind Wireline Applied Stimulation Pulses

Oil & Gas Well Remediaion

Don’t let near wellbore damage kill your production or your bottom line. Our oilfield services using WASP® technology helps keep wells alive by reconnecting you with your reservoir quickly, efficiently and safely.

WASP® is a groundbreaking tool that gets right to the core of an issue with repeatable, high power hydraulic pressure pulses and shockwaves. These can enhance oil flow in new or poorly producing wells, recover reserves from non-producing wells and increase flow in injector and disposal wells.

Green

There’s no truck convoy through people’s backyards, no work crews, and no fluids, toxins or explosives – reducing the risk chain. Our footprint is one vehicle, one technician and WASP® uses as much energy as leaving a 100W light bulb on for 3 hours.

Efficient

Oil & gas applications are complete in as little as a day, and our efficiencies don’t stop there; with no wellbore preparation and few logistics to consider, we can gear up immediately saving you valuable time every turn.

Cost Effective

Less manpower, faster treatment, no downtime due to prep or logistics, no chemicals or additional clean up cost. It all adds up to a cost effective solution to restore reservoir flow.

Safe

No fluids, toxins or explosives are used. Our small on-surface electrical charge and its transmission deep down-hole is safe. WASP® works directly at the source of the issue.

Proven

Proven technology, rigorous testing and quantifiable improvements in over 300 projects for more than 50 companies.

WASP Technology Oilfield Well Services

Let’s say your wellbore is blocked – much like a jammed straw in an icy milk shake. You wouldn’t throw away your shake – you’d clear the obstruction by bursting it out. WASP® works on a similar principle using a small electrical charge to create a powerful hydraulic impulse right at the source of the problem, clearing the wellbore.

That hydraulic impulse is a high power shockwave travelling at more than 1,500 meters per second and is followed by a 10,000psi high-pressure pulse. The energy that WASP® uses is equivalent to a tablespoon of orange juice while creating a power output of 240 megawatts. One of the advantages of the WASP® technology is that we can repeat these pulses hundreds or thousands of times to get the job done – so you can get back to work and your well can get back to producing.

Our Technology Has Performed On A Global Stage – To Rave Reviews

WASP® has helped double oil production in the Permian Basin of West Texas and boosted production by 173% in the North Sea. Now do we have your attention?

WASP® can lengthen the lifespan of operations while saving money and has been successful in stimulating production of vertical and horizontal wells at depths of less than 300m to over 3km deep at onshore and offshore locations. This proven, innovative technology has been effectively utilized in Canada, USA, Mexico, Ecuador, India, Brazil, Kuwait, Norway, Denmark, Saudi, Romania, UAE and UK.
